HAMILTON: Jamieson’s cricketing journey will be on pause until at least next summer following the discovery of a new stress fracture in his back during scans conducted after New Zealand’s recent Test series against South Africa.

This fracture occurs in the same region where Jamieson underwent surgery last year. While surgery won’t be necessary this time, he will require a period of rest and rehabilitation to facilitate healing.

Expressing gratitude for the support received from various quarters, including family, teammates, and medical professionals, Jamieson remains optimistic about his return to the game. Despite the setback, he acknowledges the inevitability of injuries in cricket but remains hopeful for a fruitful career ahead.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead acknowledges the challenge ahead for Jamieson but praises his determination. Despite the setback, the team stands firmly behind Jamieson as he embarks on the road to recovery.

Looking forward, New Zealand’s next challenge lies in their upcoming engagement against Australia.
